|Russia hopes Iran, major powers maintain constructive attitude||
TEHRAN – Moscow hopes that Iran and the six major powers maintain a constructive attitude in their future negotiations, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Monday.
The agreement reached on November 24 in Geneva on the Iranian nuclear program will help remove some of the concerns about the nature and direction of Iran’s nuclear activities, the Russian Foreign Ministry said prior to a scheduled visit by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to Tehran this week.
The statement noted that the joint action plan would provide “concrete measures to enhance the transparency of Iran’s nuclear program, which will be undertaken in close cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).”
Moscow believes that “much will now depend on the implementation of the agreements reached by the parties,” the statement added.
Also, the Russian Foreign Ministry reiterated that Moscow supports Iran’s invitation to an international Geneva II conference aimed at solving the crisis in war-torn Syria.
Iran and Russia largely share similar views on the Syrian crisis, the statement said, adding that the main goal is to achieve an early end to the bloodshed and suffering of the Syrian people by launching a dialogue between the conflicting sides.
